In addition to the familiar lawsuits that we have been seeing since the pandemic started this spring, there have been new developments with the Pennsylvania Legislature, the Supreme Court of the United States, a major sports association suing their insurers, businesses being accused of proactively encouraging employees to not use protective equipment and ignoring safety procedures, and the impact of deciding to try cases during COVID-19 and all of the safety protocols involved with such an undertaking. Our COVID-19 Task Force breaks down some of these developments in this 34th issue of Unprecedented.
We also invite you join us for our free webinar - Get Keen on the Vaccine: Considerations for Employers Considering a Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccine - on Thursday, December 17, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EST. With the release of a new COVID-19 vaccine comes hopes of a return to "normalcy" and new concerns for how to protect your workforce. Can you make vaccines mandatory for your employees? If so, what considerations must you take into account as you craft your policies? In this webinar, Spilman attorneys Carrie Grundmann and Megan Mullins will walk you through how to manage this transition while ensuring you stay compliant with existing labor and employment laws.
